Further guidance on IPC leads, including specific training and reporting requirements are contained in the letter from the department’s Secretary, Dr Brendan Murphy.
For details please read the:
- letter for Approved Providers (including multi-purpose services)
- letter for National Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander Flexible Aged Care (NATSIFAC) providers
